Yoan Capote Doubt Yoan Capote

Yoan Capote received his education in Painting at the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana. He later introduced sculpture into his discourse, interested in the use of materials and the possiblities of interaction between public and object. This interest also drove him into furniture design. Mixing a work that could be functional and that at the same time retain sculpture’s traditional point of view.

Born in Pinar del Río in 1977, Yoan Capote lives and works in Havana. He completed his art studies at the Instituto Superior de Arte (1991-95), Havana, where he then went on to teach Visual Art between 2001-03. He received the UNESCO prize during the 7th Havana Biennial (2000) with the artist collective DUPP (Desde una Pragmática Pedagógica).

He has received several fellowships and residencies including Vermont Studio Center Fellowship (2002); Brownstone Foundation Residency, Paris (2003); Mattress Factory Residency, Pittsburgh (2004); Cuban Artists Fund Grant and Fellowship, New York (2004); Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award, New York (2005); and John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, New York (2006).
